Badly creased photo
« on: Thursday 12 July 07 15:26 BST (UK) »
I don't know if this photo of my Dad in the 20s is too badly creased, but could someone have a go and see what can be done?

kind regards

Henry

ps. What does one have to do to make sure that the photo one attaches is kept to a reasonable size? This is my first day on this superb site.

Welcome Henry  ;)

Niksmum, those drapes are brilliant, what is your secret.
I am struggling to get that soft draping look.
